Meet Nana

Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling author, Nana Malone writes Sexy Feel-Good Romance and loves all things romance and adventure.

That love started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin. It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen year old. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.

Book Review for Mind Games by Nora Roberts

 Mind Games by Nora Roberts

Published May 21, 2024 by St. Martin's Press

Genre:  Romantic Suspense


Taken from Goodreads:
  The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Identity presents a suspenseful new novel of tragedy and trauma, love and family, and the evil that awaits.

As they do each June, the Foxes have driven the winding roads of Appalachia to drop off their children for a two-week stay at their grandmother’s. Here, twelve-year-old Thea can run free and breathe in the smells of pine and fresh bread and Grammie’s handmade candles. But as her parents head back to suburban Virginia, they have no idea they’re about to cross paths with a ticking time bomb.

Back in Kentucky, Thea and her grandmother Lucy both awaken from the same nightmare. And though the two have never discussed the special kind of sight they share, they know as soon as their tearful eyes meet that something terrible has happened.

The kids will be staying with Grammie now in Redbud Hollow, and thanks to Thea’s vision, their parents’ killer will spend his life in supermax. Over time, Thea will make friends, build a career, find love. But that ability to see into minds and souls still lurks within her, and though Grammie calls it a gift, it feels more like a curse―because the inmate who shattered her childhood has the same ability. Thea can hear his twisted thoughts and witness his evil acts from miles away. He knows it, and hungers for vengeance. A long, silent battle will be waged between them―and eventually bring them face to face, and head to head…


My Thoughts:  Holy Nora Roberts!  This book blew me away.  I could not put it down and did not want to finish it.  I did not want to finish it because I did not want to say goodbye to characters that I cared about.   

Mind games has everything I look for in a Nora Roberts book.  There was a twist of the paranormal, wonderful and relatable characters, a storyline that I became invested in, and a romance that is sweet and sexy.    This book is must-read fiction. 

Thank you St.Martin’s Press for a copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Meet Nora Roberts (taken from her website):
 Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, the youngest of five children. After a school career that included some time in Catholic school and the discipline of nuns, she married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland.

She worked briefly as a legal secretary. “I could type fast but couldn’t spell, I was the worst legal secretary ever,” she says now. After her sons were born she stayed home and tried every craft that came along. A blizzard in February 1979 forced her hand to try another creative outlet. She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate.

Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn’t reading or making up stories. During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981.

Nora met her second husband, Bruce Wilder, when she hired him to build bookshelves. They were married in July 1985. Since that time, they’ve expanded their home, traveled the world and opened a bookstore together.

Through the years, Nora has always been surrounded by men. Not only was she the youngest in her family, but she was also the only girl. She has raised two sons. Having spent her life surrounded by men, Ms. Roberts has a fairly good view of the workings of the male mind, which is a constant delight to her readers. It was, she’s been quoted as saying, a choice between figuring men out or running away screaming.

Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry. Recently The New Yorker called her “America’s favorite novelist.”

Release Blitz for Downpour by Maggie Gates


Downpour by Maggie Gates is now live!

Rule #1 of almost dying: Make sure someone knows your passwords. It's hard to cancel your phone plan if you're dead.

Rule #2 of almost dying: Make sure your house is clean before you walk up the steps to the pearly gates. It makes selling off your life easier.

Back-up plans are for people who plan on losing.
All it took was eight seconds for me to win the biggest competition of my life, and one second to lose everything except that championship buckle.
I had left my family's cattle ranch at eighteen with no intention of ever coming back for good.
Now I was back, stuck in a wheelchair with a beautiful disaster attempting to burn my house down.

Rule #1 of trying to not get fired: Don't piss off the grumpy bull rider.

Rule #2 of trying to not get fired:  When you do get fired, keep your chin up. The grumpy bull rider was hot.

It was just a little fire. Tiny, even. But that didn't change the fact that Ray Griffith didn't want me anywhere near him.
But we came to an agreement: I ignore him, and he doesn't fire me.
Easy, right? Not so much when we can't keep our hands off each other.

Now Live!!! Before We Were Us by C.A. Harms


Title: Before We Were Us
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre/Tropes: Age-Gap, Second Chance Romance, Older guy, Detective, Angst, OW Drama, Standalone
Release Date: May 14, 2024

She stepped up to my side in a dark club and ordered a whiskey.
My go-to drink.
I didn’t know her name, I knew nothing about her, but every part of me came alive.
For more than a year my life had been turned upside down. I’d hit a wall at every turn, but suddenly the weight had lifted.

And the minute she stepped away, I felt the loss.

Things are not always as they seem.
We all have regrets; parts of our lives we wish we could erase.
For me, I wish I could change the order in which those choices were made.
Had I only met her first.
Had it been her that said yes.
Brynn is everything I could ever want, the problem is, my past may keep us from ever having a future.

Because before we were us, I was a version of myself I’d like to forget.
But that version of me has not yet been laid completely to rest.

C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She's always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes...thankfully.

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better...that quietness changes, fast.
